Posts Tagged ‘video preview’ Checks Out Festival of Magic (Alpha)

I admit, I had been deliberately holding off on covering Festival of Magic. The developers stated publicly they they’d spent $1 million on making the game, and that they needed roughly another $1.15 million to finish it. These figures made me suspect that they might actually be a mid-sized development house trying to pass as […]

Since its announcement in March of this year, it seems like King Voxel has been in nearly every Back to Back article I’ve written. Given the number of times I’ve mentioned the game, you would think that I had some notion of whether it is any good or not–but up until the past few days, […]

Remember Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars? (I hope so–I just posted about it a few days ago!) The developers were kind enough to give me a copy of the game to look at–per tradition, I have done so, recording the affair and providing my thoughts in real-time as I go. Without further ado! (Note: I recommend […]

In my hand Youtube account, I come bearing a new video: Checks Out Avadon 2! Specifically, we’ll be looking at an early version of the Windows port of the game. It’s still in beta, but this should give us a peek at what we’re in for: Jeff Vogel has been making these sorts of […]

Andrew Ellem of Winged Pixel was kind enough to provide me with an alpha build of his interesting multi-party, turn-based strategy / first-person dungeon crawler, Heroes of a Broken Land (previously covered here). As you can see, I quickly died, then had much more success after restarting: The game is still early in development, but […]

Hello, IndieRPGers! I’ve figured out the issue with my headset microphone and have recorded a brand new Checks Out episode having a looksie at the v. 1.07 pre-alpha build of graphical roguelike Dungeonmans (previously covered here).
